Just opened at artSPACEdurban is Femergy, a group exhibition about a female lens on worldly issues.

“2016 has begun with a series of explorations of the expressive and humanistic, depiction of issues that have affected most of the Third year DUT Fine Art, Female art students.”

The collection of work looks at: identity, environmental and gender issues, as well as nostalgic. The interest in non-tradition media is very evident on the works that have been chosen. As a group of third year art students we have found that through most of our studying careers not much of the art we study focuses on the young female artist and wanted to delve into this,” says a group representative.

Participating fine art students are Alka Dass, Amy Walker, Bukelwa Vuyolwetu Ndakisa, Carla Foo, Chadre Solomon, Jessica Forster, Malinda Cebekhulu Ngcobo, Mandisa Mngadi, Nondumiso Msenti, Nokuphila Gwala, Tusani Mngomezulu, and Yasmin Dadabhay.

Femergy runs in the artSPACEdurban Main Gallery until October 14 at 16h00. artSPACE durban is situated at 3 Millar Road (off Umgeni Road) close to the Waste Centre. More information on 031 312 0793 or visit or
